Zazie dans le Métro

Director: Louis Malle Run Time: 89 min. Format: 35mm Release Year: 1960 Language: French

Starring: Annie Fratellini, Carla Marlier, Catherine Demongeot, Hubert Deschamps, Philippe Noiret

A brash and precocious ten-year-old comes to Paris for a whirlwind weekend with her rakish uncle. He and the viewer get more than they bargained for, however, in this anarchic comedy that rides roughshod over the City of Light. Based on a popular novel by Raymond Queneau that had been considered unadaptable, the audacious Zazie dans le Métro, made with flair on the cusp of the French New Wave, is a bit of stream-of-consciousness slapstick, wall-to-wall with visual gags, editing tricks, and effects.
